I think previously Jio used to do that but now airtel has also banned a lot of the popular ones. However 2 sites that don't work on airtel mobile now are still working fine on airtel broadband for me.

Thanks for informing, Sunil Mittal will now speak to his mobile and broadband teams and sync the ban list :p

great wall of India. I think i read that India had more internet shutdowns than even Pakistan in 2017-18 time period. And in today's paper, not related news, I saw that the BCCI team that went to Australia, wanted beef off the menu. wtf? Not allowing people to eat even outside India? India is turning into a place full of old wrinkled mummies regressing freedom of people everywhere.

Soon India will overtake China & will also ban Google.
Then ramdev will come up with his own version of Desi search engine, where if you hunt for porn you will be presented with Kamasutra arts.
..and Pathanjali products.

Arre they wanted beef off menu only for the indian team. The diff teams do not have dinner together. The ozzies will have beef if they want.

^^ And why exactly can't Indians have beef on the menu even when they are outside India? What is wrong in having it on the menu? Did 100% of the team there ask for it?

Maybe they might have asked it as players get a limited menu so better choose one which most will enjoy. Who knows except the team manager. A team does need to respect the majority decision which seems likely here. The Indian team is very particular about food, our captain Dhoni once with the full team switched a hotel cos they did not allow Biryani from one local players home to come inside the hotel.

That sounds like a PR stunt. I believe the hotel kicked them out for being an entitled jerk.

Does that mean that if majority of the team decide that chicken should be the only item on the menu, the vegetarians in the team should respect that and eat chicken? Is that how majority decision works in your opinion? Or do you think the vegetarians should have the right to eat what they want to?

This is what is wrong with our country. People don't respect live and let live and think they should be able to meddle in somebody else's life and choices.

Haha , could be but then the hotel never said anything like that. No hotel in india will kick out such a big contingent of VVips, Dhoni that time was the 2nd most powerful person in Indian cricket after the BCCI president and he has connections to the who's who in India.[DOUBLEPOST=1541095647][/DOUBLEPOST]

Dont be impractical. Never is there only chicken on the menu, even non vegetarians enjoy veg dishes. Its not as if they have banned someone in team from having something , one can anyway order anything specific. Just see what all Kohli eats, do you see everything he eats is in the menu ? the menu is for the majority of the team which they must have agreed to. Why are you getting so angry about removal of a dish. If you organise a party for your office and you remove fish from set menu of buffet as there is only 1 person who likes that but rest done it does not mean he cant have that. He will just order his choice a la carte.

Whats the point of talking about things that will never happen :rolleyes: Dont be so triggered, nobody has forced someone to not eat a particular dish.[DOUBLEPOST=1541096232][/DOUBLEPOST]

I dunno about this, they are paying for the hotel and services and wanted to book a banquet hall for their Biryani party. These guys spend majority of their time away from homes and having being denied a chance to have a home cooked meal would make anyone angry. Not everyone is pushover.

I am just trying to make you rethink your perspective on what you said earlier. People have this assumption that it is a democratic system when majority is able to impose its will on a minority and that minority should respect it. It doesnt work that way. A democratic system does not compromise the rights of a minority few based on the will of a majority.

Its not a complaint. Too many people are now addicted to porn and pubg anyway.
Liking does not mean addicted

If you check this site everyday does that make you an addict ?

Only if you feel compelled to do so even then i'm sure people will argue it ain't necessarily so :)
